Oh no! You’re faced with feeding a vegetarian on Thanksgiving. Let’s take this from the top…as I’ve said before – first of all…relax! .

Most vegetarians really don’t want to cause any trouble for any host. You’ll also find that many vegetarian dishes will satisfy the most ardent of carnivores so you really don’t have to put in any extra work. Last year, I put together a series of tips and thoughts on how to survive Thanksgiving with a vegetarian sitting at your table. You’ll find that prepping for a vegetarian really is not that bad. Read through that article and come back here where you’re done.

Now…last year, I also put together a list of recipes that would be suitable for your feast. Here’s an updated list of suggestions since I have another year’s worth of recipes to draw from. So,  now that the panic has subsided, you can step away from the Tofurky, create some spectacular vegetarian dishes and enjoy the holiday.

  1. My dad has always been a vegetarian so we are quite used to having extra sides, slad and dessert around the table.

  2. Thanks for simple recipe on how to make Samosa’s. I will attempt to make them during vacation. I am just worried about the mess the sugar dough will create.

  3. Thanks for the appetizer recipes. Will definitely try them.
